HAGA to Participate in Wreaths Across America;
Announces 2010 Scholarship Program
November 19, 2009
Each year during the holiday season, Wreaths Across America (WAA)
sends thousands of wreaths across the nation to honor our fallen
soldiers at their final resting place. This year the Houston Area
Glass Association (HAGA) has chosen to help the local chapter of
WAA reach its goal of placing a live Maine wreath on every fallen
soldiers gravesite at the Houston National Cemetery (63,0000), honoring
them for the freedom they fought to protect for all Americans. HAGA
has committed to be a corporate 100-Wreath sponsor, and is encouraging
its members and community to volunteer to place wreaths on December
12, 2009 or to be a wreath sponsor at either the small business
level (ten wreaths, $150) or the corporate level (100 wreaths, $1,500).
